“My friends like to dance” was an understatement by Dana about her and David’s wedding reception at Brier Creek Country Club! What a fun night and awesome group to play for!!
Dana & David had their wedding ceremony earlier in the day at St Michael’s the Archangel. Guests had a couple hours to chill, then came to Brier Creek for the reception. The cocktail hour was held in Palmers cove and guests enjoyed light hors d’oeuvres and drinks.
After the cocktail hour the 150 guests made their way to the other side of the building for dinner and dancing. I lined the wedding party up and introduced them into the room where they lined up in front of my table. Dana & David came in for their first dance and parents dances followed by a welcome by Dana’s father and a blessing. The salads and entrees came out and I played a mix of standards, soft rock and classic soul.
After dinner we had toasts and cake cutting and I invited the married couples to join Dana and David for a “longest married couple” dance. The floor opened to everyone after that with some Motown and top 40 that filled it for the next 2 hours. I even played “The Perculator” for their friend Nick to show his moves.
We ended the night with a huge sing-a-long to “Sweet Caroline” and a sparkler exit from the front of the building.
This was one of my favorite weddings, and not one I, or the guests, will soon forget!
